SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's Fujian Refining & Petrochemical Co (FREP) has reduced the operating rates of its aromatics unit in Quanzhou to 60% on Wednesday because of technical issues at an upstream refinery, a company source said.
The aromatics plant, which can produce 260,000 tonnes/year of benzene and 700,000 tonnes/year of paraxylene (PX), may run at this reduced rate for two to three days, the source said.
